***So I updated it and added something that sounds close to the pre chorus. I doubt it's 
correct, but it's not too bad. If anyone has suggestions on what it is, comment the tab 
I'll update it if it sounds better to me.***

* NO GUITAR *
I've got emotion
Dripping out my pores and I
Thought I would let you know
You are the night light,
Ripping through my wicked world
How you make it sparkle and glow,

I had some night pills,
Crawling up my skin and bones
I nearly did explode
You smote the demons
Gave me back my feelings

Yeah, but it's less of a hassle if I just leave it in standard. At least for me. Thanks though.
